We are a not-for-profit social enterprise run by staff and student volunteers of RUSU.
Realfoods is a social enterprise run by staff and student volunteers of the RMIT University Student Union (RUSU). We’re focused on sustainability and providing ethical, plant based & healthy food options and fair trade, specialty coffee.
We specialise in catering to diverse dietary requirements including: gluten free, vegan, dairy free and halal friendly.
Our flagship store is located at the bustling City Campus, with our second store located on the leafy green, Bundoora West Campus, where you can enjoy your coffee amongst the trees, whistling birds and the occasional cheeky kangaroo.
Our ethos is built around the idea that everyone can positively impact their environment and health & wellbeing with the smallest of changes. As business and volunteer program, we are dedicated to educating students, staff and our customers on how this can be achieved. Some examples of how we do this are:
Our cafes provide real world hospitality and retail training opportunities for our student volunteers.
We are happy to cater events scheduled between 8.00am and 2.30pm, Monday – Friday. Please contact us to discuss events outside of this period and we will accommodate if possible. Email your order to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a minimum of 3 working days notice to ensure your preferred menu selection is available. We will confirm your order as soon as we can.

Our food offerings are plant based, ethical and healthy. We do our best to source the freshest produce locally, while aiming to keep it as affordable as possible.
Our daily menu offers a range of regional curries, salads and grains, where you can ‘build your meal’ to your liking. We also have a selection of toasties, wraps, pies and a bunch of other sweet and savoury treats. We’re mindful that many of our customers have specific dietary requirements.
